Sacred Rituals, the action packed sequel to Nisha, is now available at the shop! Our bad-ass heroine returns cooler and stronger than ever as she explores more of her magical powers.
“[The Diversity!] Airin describes Saad as black-skinned man, Saad-Faris’ relationship, and how Saad’s clan speak through mind and not through spoken words. It really represents the minorities, and that’s an empowering step! Including these topics into coming-of-age literature is never been easy, but Airin did it very well!”Solana , book reviewer
“When I read about The Fisherman Story (in Sacred Rituals), I firmly believe that the author has a solid talent for writing children’s books or middle-grade novels. Her writing style reminds me of some of the famous children’s books I read in the past.”Febrian Giovanni, book reviewer
“…every time I had to put the book down, I kept thinking about what happened or what will happen. This book without a doubt is something you have never read before in a middle-grade fantasy book. Nisha, our main character is this sassy, bold, wise princess (I love her!)”Jacqueline, One Chapter Left
“I would recommend this book to those looking for a way to ease themselves into fantasy. I think this would be the perfect intro book into the genre, and it definitely will leave you with a good first impression afterwards.”Angela, The 7th Volume
“…the writing style is very unique. It’s not one I usually look for in books but I personally really enjoyed it with ‘Nisha’ and felt like it fit the tone of the story very well. It’s immersive but also simplistic, clear and concise.”Lexa, Somerset, UK
“Sacred Rituals is really magical and heartwarming! I love the story of Faris’ childhood. It has quite a lot of action scenes, but what I love most in the story is that the characters are facing their own difficulties and they managed to learn and grow.”Sherry, The Cozy Library
